Gendhing Kombang Mara kethuk 2 kerep minggah 4, pathetan wantah, laras pelog pathet lima.

The pathet, or mode, of this piece is pelog lima. All pathet are associated with a particular mood or feeling and pelog lima evokes gravitas. Kombang Mara features elaborating instruments such as rebab (bowed lute), gender (bronze-keyed metallophone) and sindhen (female singer). The title Kombang Mara means "Approaches of the Bumblebees." Attributed to Prabu Surya Wasesa, king of Jenggala in East Java in the 12th century, the piece begins with a calm and majestic feeling and ends with a fast and strong feeling.
